Welcome to Best of the Weekend! We are glad that you are here and are starting your weekend with us.
Last weekend’s Christmas activities were so much fun and this weekend the fun continues. I’m traveling to Charlotte to volunteer with Operation Christmas Child today. By the time you read this, my shift will be over. I’m looking forward helping to pack and process all of the shoe boxes filled with gifts that have been donated and will be sent to needy children. Saturday night I’m going on a candlelight tour at Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest and Sunday watching my niece perform in her final Nutcracker performance. It’s going to be a busy and fun-filled weekend!
Amy, Ginnie, and I enjoy hosting the Best of the Weekend Party each Friday night at 8pm.
If you don’t already follow us in some way, we’d love for you to do so.

What I Shared This Week
I shared the DIY Front Porch Planters that I put together using mostly greenery from my yard. The step-by-step tutorial will show you exactly how I created this look.
This year I made all of the ornaments on our porch tree. I shared how I made the Easy Pine Cone Ornaments that look like they’ve been kissed with snow.
I also shared how I made the Easy Clay Ornaments that also are on the porch tree. These were fun to make and would look great tied to a Christmas gift.
The most clicked link from last week’s party was Heavenly Chicken from Living on Cloud Nine.
Sadie Seasongoods shared how to make Christmas Ornaments from Canning Jar Lids. I love the vintage Christmas wrapping paper used to make these!
My Thrift Store Addiction shared how she repurposed a player piano roll into a Christmas Farmhouse Sign. No fancy cutting machine is needed for this project!
Chaos with Coffee shared pictures from the New York Botanical Garden Train Show.
Many thanks to those who joined the party last week. I always enjoy browsing through the projects!
I look forward to what is shared this week.
